A Wendy House for Christmas? For the child who has everything!!

The two-storey properties are built by a company in Pennsylvania called Lilliput Homes 

Short of ideas for a gift for the children this Christmas?? Back in the 1970s and 1980s, a Wendy house consisted of 16 plastic tubes and a wad of brightly coloured material with windows and a door printed on. These days, the buildings are made of solid wood, with functioning windows, lighting and even colour schemes. But these young people's palaces don't come cheap. These elaborate Wendy houses for toddlers modelled on castles and Victorian houses are on sale for $20,000 (£12,770). The unbelievably detailed models come with Roman pillars, slides and even castle turrets. Amazingly, some of the houses can even be hooked up to electrical mains and come with fully operable doors and windows. The mini-dwellings, designed for kids aged three to ten years old, are nearly double the price of Britain's cheapest two-up two-down property. In April, a house in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire was put up for sale at an asking price of £7,000 ($11,000)!!??

Cotton Candy Sky Crop

Sugar and spice and everything nice, that's what the “Cotton Candy Manor”, pictured above, is made of!! Clad in cotton-candy colour siding, this sweet estate will entertain its wee occupants for hours. Built in a traditional style, the front entrance is created with a custom styled front door topped with a sunburst transom window, protected by a peaked roof line. This home’s rich features include dormers, a wing surrounded by elegant palladian windows, a side entrance door with window, and slate grey window shutters which accent the operable windows. A brass plated doorbell and door knocker are perfect for announcing visitors to this delightful home.   Inside, a loft leads to an outdoor balcony, while the columned porch below creates a shady spot for reading or resting. Once featured on theOprah Winfrey Show, delectable details inside this home include textured-painted walls, simulated hardwood floors, and a sunny skylight. It is available in stock for only $ 9,899.00 today!!

Stephen Chernicky, owner of Lilliput Play Homes, said: “Twenty years ago, my wife and I searched for a playhouse for our daughter, Alyssa, but were unable to discover a product special enough for our little girl. Soon after we created the first Victorian Mansion playhouse and Lilliput Play Homes was born. We take personal pride in every wooden playhouse that our company creates.” He continued: “We share the feeling of our customers, that children should have a special place of their own to grow and discover.” If operable windows, doors and electricity isn't enough, Lilliput even give the option to customise the colour schemes inside the houses. In fact, with prices on the property market going through the roof in much of the UK, it wouldn't be too surprising if cash-strapped twenty-somethings start snapping up the buildings as an alternative to bricks and mortar.

However, if you really want to push the boat out this year, you can delight your grandchildren with the “Grand Victorian” which is available now for only $ 19,999.00!! The Grand Victorian Playhouse for children pictured below is an enchanting play home straight out of a fairy tale. The outside is picture perfect, with a wraparound porch, elegant stained glass window, window boxes full of fresh blooms, a sunny skylight, and a working doorbell and brass door knocker. Victorian trim details are abundant, and a shake shingle gable, supported by fanciful corbels, adds to the beauty of home.  Inside, the decorative details continue with a cozy window seat hugging the bay windows, textured-painted walls, and simulated hardwood floors. A white fireplace mantel on which to place your treasures, houses a hand- painted flame, and an upstairs cozy loft space is accessed by a ladder. The most luxurious Lilliput play home, this Victorian is truly grand indeed….. and could be yours for less than $20.000!!??

Grand Victorian Resized
There was plenty of competition last night at the Oxshott Bridge Club as 12 + 1/2 Tables turned up to contest the Third Round of our premier Pairs Competition of the year, the Tilling Trophy; and in a really close finish, there was less than one-half of one percentage point separating the top five Pairs when the final Leaderboard was published!! You can read all about it in the Report by clicking on the "Competitions" tab in the Menu to the left of this box and clicking again on the "Competitions News" tab in the resulting Menu. Alternatively you can study the full Leaderboard and the individual Travellers by clicking on the "Latest Result" button at the top right of this page.
